. the obama campaign saying that 181 million i believe was raised in small donations. nevertheless, governor romney was able to raise more than 10 million right after that debate. what does that mean, those campaign contributions, at this point? >> the president's campaign had such a big month in september because a lot of his supporters thought he was going to win and they wanted buy in and they put up the biggest month any campaign has had in this election season. i would point out president obama had a bigger month in his fir run for office in 2008. but really, for romney, he just energized supporters and showed him he's back in the game. i would say there was a lot of talk before the debate that mitt romney, his -- the chances in the race were slipping away so a lot of republican donors were looking at moving to congressional races and wanted to think about the senate and house races as a way to save runs, if you will, because they thought romney's chance mrs. over t shows he's back in the game. >> the vice presidential debate, we'll see the first one this week. i think a lot of people w
will not allow the share of the taxes that the rich are paying to go up. that undoes $100 million worth of obama advertising in 5 minutes. >> sean: you know, it's funny. i said something very similar -- on my radio program. it is amazing because they spent millions of dollars to position mitt romney and create a narrative about mitt romney and a caricature of mitt romney. wants dirty air, dirty water and doesn't care about children with autism or down's synd scprom wants to throw granny over the cliff. romney rendered all of those millions of dollars wasted. there is a side by side and people saw for themselves, a very different person than a caricature that the democrats were painting of him. where does he go from here? how should he prepare for the next debates? >> i think romney has to continue to hammer at these points. he gave a foreign policy speech, this monday, i am afraid it's a little bit late. when we were seized in the libya story and the american embassies were under attack from tunisia to indonesia, that was the time that he should have given it. now, he will be giving it. i think
million helping elect president obama and the democrats in 2008, there was no corollary to that that existed on the right to be able to spend large amounts of money on behalf of the republican candidates for the house and senate. we set a goal of $50 million in 2010 and i was working a crossroads when president obama attacked crossroads could he said we were taking illegally from china. as soon as he said that come within 10 days, which saw an uptick in crossroads. the reason for that was because president obama, by attacking crossroads, identified as as the biggest risk to his existence. and the rest is history. that is kind of were the center- right groups are. in fact, in 2010, people think of crossroads as being the biggest spenders in the 2010 election. we were not. the biggest expenditures were from the american federation of states county and municipal employees. the second biggest spending group was the use chambers. and then rounding up the top five were nci you -- was day se -- were the seiu. so they were not super pacs, but .abor unions feare a lot of labour d
obama and mitt romney took the stage in denver to go head to head for the first time. an estimated 60 million americans tuned in to watch this critical moment in an often contentious presidential campaign with the election just 34 days away. crucial swing voters still undecided. with romney trailing in the polls, time running short, tonight could be his turning point. here's how it went down. they came out, shook hands, ready for the main event. but president obama began soft, very soft. a shoutout to the first lady. >> i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> romney graciously followed suit with an easy quip. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine, here with me. >> reporter: and then they got down to business. the subject, jobs. romney took it to the president from the get-go. >> middle income families are being crushed. >> reporter: it was clear and direct and aggressive. romney seemed ho
in the history of the united states. 1.5 million. >> obama has deported? >> yes. then republicans instead of taking this and taking advantage of this situation and saying, you know, we're going to be the pro immigrant party. we're going to try to legalize 11 million or do something about it, instead of doing that they're talking about arizona being the model, deportation, rejecting the dream act. >> what does it mean, self-deportation? >> that's impossible. >> how so? >> it's like they're doing it in arizona. they make it so difficult you can't have a job, if possible you can't get housing. your children if they go to school will have their background checked and you will just go back because you can't live here. you can't get a job. you can't live. you feel all this pressure. i think that's what they mean by self of deport. >> now you see the latest latino poll, 73% support barack obama and only 21% support mitt romney. if there's a magic number, it's 33%. >> 33 or 38% is what a republican needs to win. >> of the hispanic vote. >> of the hispanic vote. >> so if it's true that the latino
? >> well, because president obama in his dishonest way spent $250 million creating a caricature of somebody that doesn't exist. and second reason is, is that the mainstream media in playing clips of governor romney, over the past few months, have picked, in my opinion, the worst ones. what people saw last night was the real mitt romney, an individual that is truly compassionate, that really cares about people in america, understands they are hurting, under president obama, and demonstrated that he knows the issues from top to bottom. contrast that with a president that seemed, that not seemed, that was uninformed, detached, and demonstrated that he has been lazy and disengaged and has no idea, not only of his own policies, but has no idea what mitt romney's real policies are. the president last night showed us why the country is in trouble. and it is because we have a bumbler in the white house. jon: the folks at bloomberg.com, gave a generally good review to mr. , governor romney's performance but they said this. obama, president obama, can always console himself with the political science
and talked about creating 12 million jobs. what we saw from president obama was -- wait a minute, piers. what we saw once again was -- >> this is my show, young lady. moving to brent o'donnell at high speed. now, from a purely technical point of view, in the way that barack obama conducted himself in appearance last night, a few things surprised me. most of all as i was watching, i was live tweeting, this continual looking down at his notes, disengaging completely from mitt romney. i just thought it looked strange. >> yeah. you know, his body language, whatold an incredible story, the way he communicated last night said more than he actually said with his mouth. maria said he looked into the camera. he was looking down at his notepad way more than he was looking into the camera and his body language basically said you know, i'm not interested in being here, i'm irritated i have to be here, i'm going to argue with the moderator for five seconds and i'm going to, you know, really just kind of check out of the debate. he was totally disengaged last night, and i think it was because he was in sho
, why on earth was barack obama not correcting them during the debate in front of over 60 million americans? >> and that's what i would ask, i would love to honestly hear newt gingrich's response to this, because as he said in his previous debates, when he backed down a bit, you just cannot debate somebody who is dishonest. you just can't. this is again, quoting newt gingrich. the people say i'm a good debater. i can't debate somebody who won't tell the truth. >> what i'm asking you, why did the president not correct any of these apparent lies? it's the biggest audience of the year. it's a huge debate. it's potentially a game changing moment in the election. you say mitt romney lied 25 times. barack obama didn't point that out to the american public once. >> yeah. i think he should have corrected some of them. i'm not here as a surrogate for the obama team, but i am here telling you that you have to decide when yoare in a debate how much of your real estate you are going to spend in counteracting the lies of your opponent and how much you want to put forth your plan. the president
better than president obama -- >> i have a detailed plan to create 12 million new jobs. >> reporter: obama is celebrating this report. >> this country has come too far to turn back now. >> reporter: a benchmark, he says, proves america is on the right track. economists say the number of new jobs being created is still not enough to significantly lower the unemploit rate. the next jobs report comes out just four days before the election. reporting live on capitol hill, i'm danielle lee, news 4. >>> health officials across the country are bracing for more cases of infection from that fungal meningitis outbreak. today the virginia department of health says about 630 people received tainted injections here. the patients have all been contacted. the health commissioner in maryland now says there's 29 cases in maryland and one death. the death toll nationwide remains at 5. in all cases, patients receive tainted steered steroid injecti pharmacy that has closed. >>> more trouble for american airlines. they had to cancel dozens of flights today so they could repair the loose seat problems. t

's plan for opportunity and growth. they clearly decided it has to be contrasting visions why obama is wrong and they claim romney is right. i think you'll see a lot of that on wednesday night. >> eric: they estimate 5 million americans will be watching. how important is it on wednesday? could it be the turning point in this race on wednesday night? >> i don't think people are saying, romney has to land a knockout blow, i don't think it has to happen. the polls seem to indicate and from top officials feel that obama is leading at this point is that the end of the night on wednesday night a lot of voters, millions of voters have to say, gee, i thought i was for obama but i'm not so sure. think don't have to put a yard sign for mitt romney on their front lawn. they need to sort of say, i thought i knew i was for but i'm not sure. if that happened and that would be enough for mitt romney. >> eric: what should we look for? should we watch for iconic line, are you better off than four years ago? >> i think from romney's point of view, he has to do a couple of things. he has to make the c
to $3 million for his campaign purchase either an idea of how it differs from what romney has been raising, this is three reports the camera, primary fundraising through the end of august, barack obama has raised 147 million, or 34% of his primary dollars of people who gave under $200. these are people mostly going online or respond to text messages or being hit by campaign aides as he walked precincts. and these are nations, depends on the month, but they average in 15, 20, $30 range. but it adds up to an enormous amount of money. romney so far this cycle, in a moment where you would think there's a lot of grassroots, has been really disappointing among small dollar donors. but more disappointing than john mccain was in 2008. arguably a more difficult year for republicans to get their base going. he is raise $40 million, or 18% of his take country and -- the reverse is happening. barack obama is actually, is raising less money this time than he did in 2008 as a sitting president for people to max out on their donation. in 2008 it was $2300 the max to give. this cycle is $2500. but

the romney numbers . >> obama campaign said in the month of september they raised 181 million dollars. a biggest of either campaign so far this yoor. not as big as he was able to raise in the month of october in 08. no word for the romney campaign. but when i talked to staffers last night and discussed the obama total of over 181 million dollars. they all smiled and grinned and said perhaps we can top that. they haven't said that is the case. for mr. romney 12 million just since the debate. that is a vast amount of on line fund raise there is concern in the republican party that the big donor are making their money for the house and senate because mr. mitt romney had a tough go and well, in the wake of the debate uptake in big dollar donations for the romney campaign suggest they aleviated. there is a major phone bank and calling all over the country that type of grass roots is very, very important as we are 31 days from the election . it is electric. people were wait traffic was thick around that venu. i want to explain to everybody. we are monitor what the government is saying. he i

. they are pledging more money. at the same time the obama campaign raised a record $150 million in september. so let me give you the checkbook, joe. do you spend that kind of money on ads? do you beef up your ground game? what do you do with that cash? >> i think both. i think what ads allow you to do is they allow you to microtarget. tough target carefully the people who are not yet decided or the people who might at the last minute change their mind. and certainly some of the folks that might change their mind are people who are soft democrats but aren't working right now or who are displeased with the economy, with the direction in which the country is headed. so you want to spend that money to get to them to reach them with a positive message and to get them to be solid on your hand. >> jamal, are you worried about the debate? do you think the president has more ground to make up and that might influence how they spend their money? >> the president certainly has ground to make up. it wasn't the greatest debate performance anyone has ever seen, and i think he's going to have to do better in the n
are asking is who can bring back the jobs? under president obama we've lost over a half a million manufacturing jobs, and china has passed us in manufacturing. >> money, money, money being spent. boy, joining me is democratic strategist jamal sill mons, republican strategist joe watkins. good to see you guys. >> good to see you. >> good to see you, too. >> jamal, let me get your reaction. can these ads help? romney is losing ohio. the president has emphasized saving the auto industry, now the unemployment rate has gone down, but with a lot of cash can things be turned around? >> you know, at some point there's a declining significance of cash. in presidential campaigns people start paying a lot of attention to you. they pay a lot of attention especially though to their news anchor, 5:00 p.m. news anchor is the most trusted individual in most local markets. so that news show is very important. so that's why candidates go to town, they do those events, they try to make the morning and evening news so they can have an impression because people only believe half of what they see in tv
